2 April 2019

The UN Road Safety Collaboration is pleased to announce the theme of the 5th UN Global Road Safety Week: “Leadership for road safety.” Enlightened leaders are able to provide a vision of what the future might look like and to mobilize action to achieve this.

It will be held from the 6th - 12th May 2019.

This theme acknowledges that stronger leadership is needed to advance road safety in countries and communities worldwide.

The goal of the Week is to generate a demand from the public for stronger leadership for road safety worldwide. Its objectives are to:

  • provide an opportunity for civil society to generate demands for strong leadership for road safety, especially around concrete, evidence-based interventions which will save lives.
  • inspire leaders to take action by showcasing examples of strong leadership for road safety within governments, international agencies, NGOs, foundations, schools and universities, and private companies, among others.
